Didn't follow the one in North Dakota? It ruled 100% the opposite.

To sum it up:

"The difference between those two decisions partly reflects the difference between broad and narrow understandings of "public nuisance." But the diametrically opposed rulings also pit a simple narrative of the "opioid crisis" with a clear set of villains against a more complicated story that's closer to the truth."

"Balkman views the very idea that pain is undertreated as suspect in light of the dramatic increase in opioid prescriptions since the 1990s. But inadequate pain treatment can and does coincide with widespread misuse, and the problem has been aggravated in recent years by ham-handed efforts to reduce prescriptions, as the FDA, the CDC, and the American Medical Association have recognized."

"Judge Hill concluded that the link between pharmaceutical companies and opioid abuse asserted by North Dakota "depends on an extremely attenuated, multi-step, and remote causal chain." It ignores the role of regulators who establish rules for opioid use, doctors who exercise independent medical judgment in deciding when and how to prescribe these drugs, and people who choose to take pain pills for nonmedical purposes, the vast majority of whom are not bona fide pain patients."
